How to Choose the Right Automotive SoC and Save Millions


By Tero Sarkkinen

Choosing the optimal SoC for cockpit and autonomous drive systems is difficult and risky. If one chooses an SoC that’s extremely high powered, it will cause the company to pay too much for unnecessary capacity. On the other hand, if one chooses an SoC that’s too low powered, then the company will pay the price in impossible requests for functionality during development. Both scenarios imply excessive costs, often going up to many millions of Euros or Dollars wasted.

Basemark Automotive Testing Suite (BATS), is designed to give objective data and enable professional performance evaluations of different SoCs and to see which is the best match for the requirements.

BATS features real-life workloads for machine vision, instrument clusters and IVIs. You can run the tests in parallel to see whether you can run the whole autonomous car system from one SoC or not. You can also configure how many screens you will have and run tests simultaneously in all of them.



Basemark is the processor industry’s trusted benchmark company with a long tradition and a proven track record. Basemark also stands alone in having deep experience with series production autonomous drive software development, as well as instrument cluster and IVI implementation for series production cars and trucks.
